The world is staring down the barrel of a crisis that poses a multitude of monumental problems. By 2050, the UN predicts that there will be 10 Billion people inhabiting our planet. One of the biggest problems we face as a human species…is how to feed ourselves. This week on New Wave, join us as we explore the innovative and entrepreneurial genius of Marc St. Onge, the founder of Smallfood. Smallfood is using microalgae to help re-engineer global food production, and hopefully inspire others to get on board to give the human species of the future a fighting chance at food and nutritional security.
